(Uhhh…) Dona-tell me who you are again, dude.
— Donatello

Donatello, alongside the other Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo, battled the Renaissance Artists in Artists vs TMNT. He was voiced by both Nice Peter and EpicLLOYD; he was physically portrayed by Lloyd, with Xin Wuku as his stunt double.

Information on the rapper

Donatello is a fictional character and one of the four protagonists of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics and all related media. In the Mirage/Image Comics, all four turtles wear red bandanas, but in modern versions he wears a purple bandana. His primary/signature weapon is his effective bō staff. In all media, he is depicted as the smartest, quick-witted, and most intelligent of the four turtles. He is co-creator Peter Laird's favorite turtle. He is named after the Renaissance artist, Donatello Bardi.


[Note: Donatello is in purple, while Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo are in regular text. All turtles rapping at the same time is italicized.]

Verse 1:

The wisdom of our master (Splinter)

Taught us not to rush to violence, (Master Splinter)

But our master (Master Splinter)

Ain't here, dude! (Heeyah!)

I don't think you wanna mess with my katana blades!

Get back in your floppy helicopter, fly away!

I can Bebop and Steadyrock a mic, sucka!

I'm a pristine Sistine nun chucka!

(Uh!) Oh hi, I'm a cool but rude guy!

Put you back in school with the tip of my two sai!

(Uhhh…) Dona-tell me who you are again, dude,

'Cause I don't Gattamelata clue what you do.

Verse 2:

Yo, go ahead and hate. We'll just skate on by!

You guys draw more dicks than New York pride!

We're the TMNT, drop-kicking Italy! (Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go! Go!)

Chowing on your tower made of pizza! Save a slice for me!


  • If you watch the shot of Donatello furthest back in his title card, you can see Xin Wuku's neck showing once he stops.
  • When Michelangelo said "You guys draw more dicks than New York pride!", Donatello had the wrong weapon: Raphael's sai.
  • During the line "We're the T…", he is voiced by Nice Peter instead of EpicLLOYD, as he was previously.
    • This makes him the fourth rapper to be voiced by more than one person.
  • Donatello, alongside Raphael, has the least number of solo lines out of the TMNT, at three.
  • He is the only Turtle to not reference his weapon of choice during the battle.
  • Due to the Turtles' segment being filmed behind a blue screen, filming using Donatello's purple mask was not done. Instead, post-editing altered the colors of the existing masks to a shade of purple.
